Peanut Butter Fudge

25 Days of Christmas 

Day 9

This is a recipe I received from an Aunt of mine years ago.

I make it yearly as a way of remembering her and the time I spent at her house while growing up.  

Ingredients

2 heaping Tbsp peanut butter

2 c sugar

1/2 c milk

1 tsp vanilla

nuts (optional)

Directions

Put all the ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, boiling for 5 mins. After coming to a full boil, remove from heat and beat until thick.

Pour in a buttered pan, cool, and cut into squares.

(I have learned over the years to never make fudge on a rainy or humid day. It will not set properly.)

Dark Chocolate Fudge

Day 12

80B49F08-4B22-4AC9-BAA8-FFA1F19668FC

This is a recipe I use every time I need fudge. I mostly make it at Christmas, but if I was to need a fudge recipe at some point during the year, this is the one I use.

Avoid making this recipe on a wet and humid day. It will not set well.

Ingredients

3 c Hershey’s Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

1 (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk (I used caramel flavor and it was delicious.)

1 c Walnuts, chopped

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (any flavor of your choice will work well, Peppermint is an amazing flavor to choose if you like minty fudge.)

Dash of Salt

Directions

In a heavy sauce pan, over low heat, melt the chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat; stir in walnuts and vanilla.

Spread evenly into a waxed paper lined 8×8 or 9×9 pan. Chill for 2 hours or until firm. Turn fudge onto a cutting board, peel off wax paper and cut into squares.

Store at room temperature.

Disclaimer, my daughter taste tested and looooooved it.
